The focus was on learning more about and directly from five online platforms and providers members are relying on for 2021 and going forward. Thanks so much to all!

Federation member Academy of Management also kindly shared information on its platform.

The rich conversation centered around the following issues: platforms’ functionalities, ease of use and user’s experience, cost, security, ecological/environmental impact,…

Participants decided to meet again late August/early September to share the 2021 summer experiences and further discuss the economics of the online conferences and the financial consequences for our learned societies.
